Gary Brown is expected to return as Dallas Cowboys running backs coach, according to sources.

Brown also had interest from the Oakland Raiders and Houston Texans, but opted to remain with the Cowboys, where he has been since 2013.

He has overseen the development of DeMarco Murray and Ezekiel Elliott, who led the NFL in rushing in 2014 and 2016. Brown helped Murray, who was named to the Pro Bowl in 2013 and ’14, and Elliott, who was named a first-team All Pro in 2016, become smarter running backs and identify defensive fronts to improve their ability to hit the hole in the zone running scheme.

But Brown’s work extends beyond those two. In 2015, Darren McFadden finished fourth in the NFL in rushing with 1,089 yards despite not becoming the lead back until the sixth game of the season. With Elliott suspended for six games in 2017, the Cowboys still managed to run the ball effectively with Alfred Morris and Rod Smith.

Smith’s development as a solid third-down back, as well as Keith Smith’s seamless transition from linebacker to fullback two years ago also speaks well on Brown’s coaching ability.

Brown is the first coach with an expiring contract to remain with the Cowboys. The Cowboys would also like passing game coordinator and linebackers coach Matt Eberflus and safeties coach Greg Jackson to return. Eberflus could be a defensive coordinator depending on how some head coaching vacancies are filled, but it is also possible he could return to the Cowboys with an expanded role.

There have been six changes on Jason Garrett’s staff so far with special teams coordinator Rich Bisaccia (Oakland), offensive line coach Frank Pollack (Cincinnati Bengals), quarterbacks coach Derek Dooley (Missouri offensive coordinator), quarterbacks coach Wade Wilson, secondary coach Joe Baker and tight ends coach Steve Loney not returning.

The Cowboys have interviewed long-time Cincinnati offensive line coach Paul Alexander and Indianapolis Colts receivers coach Sanjay Lal.

Darren McFadden found out he would be inactive for last Sunday’s game against the Philadelphia Eagles just about the same time as everybody else, a few hours before kickoff.

“Surprised the hell out of me,” McFadden said. “But that’s what they decided, man. That’s just what it is right now.”

The Cowboys opted to carry two tailbacks, Alfred Morris and Rod Smith, against the Eagles because they need extra help on special teams. McFadden’s only contribution on special teams is on the kick return team.

McFadden was inactive for the first eight games of the season, but when Ezekiel Elliott’s six-game suspension started, it was expected he would be part of a running back committee with Morris and Smith. He carried one time for minus-2 yards in the loss to the Atlanta Falcons.

McFadden has gone through two straight lost seasons after leading the Cowboys and finishing fourth in the NFL in rushing with 1,089 yards in 2015. He missed the first 13 games last season because of a broken elbow suffered in the offseason and he has dressed for one game this season.

The inactivity has him thinking about his future. He is set to be a free agent after the season.

“When the offseason gets here I’ll sit down and think about it, said McFadden, who is in his 10th season. “Try to get away from the game for a little while and just make a decision from there.”

With a short turnaround this week and health issues at linebacker (Sean Lee, Anthony Hitchens) there is a possibility McFadden could be inactive Thursday against the Los Angeles Chargers.

“It’s very frustrating,” McFadden said, “but at the end of the day they make their decisions, and I can’t do nothing but roll with them.”

No teammates are affected more by Ezekiel Elliott’s status than Alfred Morris and Darren McFadden.

Morris was set to be the Dallas Cowboys’ starting running back in Elliott’s absence, and McFadden was set to be active for the first time this season against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday.

With Elliott now eligible to play thanks to a temporary administrative stay from the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, Morris and McFadden should go back to their normal roles.

How do they stay off the emotional roller coaster?

“Don’t get on it,” said Morris, who has not had more than four carries in a game this season. “Easy enough.”

McFadden said he resisted getting “too hyped” for the game because he knew Elliott’s late reinstatement was possible.

“I take my feelings out of it,” McFadden said. “You just have to approach the day every day. I approach it the same way whether I’m playing or not playing. I’m just going to continue to do that.”

Coach Jason Garrett said the Cowboys had two good practices without Elliott on Wednesday and Thursday.

“Feel very confident in the other running backs that we have on our team,” Garrett said. “Again, two good practices, guys that have been experienced and productive players in this league, so we feel good about what their roles are, but certainly [Elliott] helps us. He’s been very productive for us from the first game he’s played. He’s been playing awfully well here of late and excited to have him back.”

Morris and McFadden were in meetings when Elliott showed up.

“We’re happy to have Zeke back out there, glad he’s playing,” McFadden said. “Just taking it and rolling with it.”

Morris said it “is back to business as normal,” but admits it is difficult seeing a teammate deal with off-field issues.

“I don’t blame him if you feel like you’re in the right,” Morris said of Elliott fighting his six-game suspension for violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy. “I don’t know; it’s so weird. But it’s like nobody wants to admit defeat. He’s going to fight for his name. The NFL is going to fight for what they do … so it’s almost like a lose-lose. But they need to get to a conclusion here because that’s annoying for that kid.”
